After identifying areas of opportunity for improvement, I've decided to tackle the moment when the challenge is first announced and focus on two important human-centered design mindsets - empathy and optimism. I've assumed a show of positive outcomes and people that would benefit from the challenge, would increase interest and also maybe engage innovators who, at first, do not feel connected to the subject. The idea is feasible, since it involves adding one webpage, and curating - not creating - content.
While doing research, I've came across some amazing articles and videos on the subject and decided to include real links in the mockup.
